Buying for our antiques and curiosa shop the Cup and Saucer.

This week I did a loppistour with my sister-in-law Marieke.
That's rather popular here in Värmland: drive around along several
barns, houses and shops with secondhand stuff.
And I found some things for our shop as well as for myself.

The miniature cup and saucer of
English bone china stays here:
at the Cup and Saucer!

Worked in the garden and on the 'jordkällare' (nature basement).

This is still the yellow time, like I call it. Yellow flowers everywhere:
cultivated and wild flowers!  Our sister in law just told us that you can
eat dandelions, well, we have a lot of food on our land then!
And I'm glad I 'did' the 'jordkällare' today, took away old raspberry-poles
and grass. Looks nicer each day at the Cup and Saucer in Ransäter!

Plucky guests in our Bed and Breakfast the Cup and Saucer in Värmland!

They slept well last night and that was deserved! They cycled 190 kilometers yesterday!
And this morning, after a hearty breakfast, they were preparing their bicycle tour to Norway.

Flyer distribution of our Cup and Saucer in Ransäter, Värmland

Each year at the start of the season we are driving to several places around
us to provide the tourist offices with our flyers.
Today it was Sunne because we always try to combine on such trips and
we had i.a. to visit our accountant there.
It's  wonderful situated at the large lake 'Fryken', where holidaymakers will
swim again shortly.

Work on our land in Ransäter, Värmland today.

And we have a lot of land here! Only around our house we have a border
with ornamental plants and I already did that for the first time this season.
Today I did the heavier stuff, at least a part of it.
On the picture you see the part in front of our shop/cafe the Cup and Saucer.
On the rectangle we had a greenhouse till last summer, but today we planted
2 cherry trees there. The stems you see around that are raspberry plants and
looking well you can see the lupines coming. I'll make a picture of the same
area in about a month, nice to see!

Wonderful first day of our antiques/curiosa/flea shop/cafe the Cup and Saucer!

Yes, it was really a good start today with nice and interested customers!
And several of them tasted and appreciated our homemade pies,
